Two Kinds of Objects


……………………

She collects antiques and shelves them in racks hidden away so that prying-eyed guests are spared from glares of envy.

The last time they met, she placed the object of her choice – an authentic ivory vessel that looked every which way magnificent – a foot away from her friend from whom it elicited waw’s and mmm’s when she said:

‘Out of all my collectible, this is the best object I’ve got.’

The next time - in a restaurant, under a Turkish chandelier - the friend introduced her for the first time to her beau and while he was away looking for a socket to plug in his iPod she told her in a muffled undertone:

‘He’s only one (of many) best man-friends of mine.’

  1. sri ram Nice insight! If said 'While the flirty gals close their eyes, the naughty boys wag their tails', that would be so true as well!

  2. Ruhi Thank you!

    Given free rein, both may turn out for the worse. In a certain context, objectifying the subjectified (subjectifying the objectified) may lead to the never-emerging balance, in another to new kinds of perversion, may as well to nullification. Create perspectives! Dismantle, invert, assemble. Create perspectives anew! Spin, flip, start over. So to speak!

  3. 'While the flirty guys close their eyes, the naughty gals wag their tails' It's always impossible to predict the mindset of beautiful gals.

  4. Pretty and pointed. I don't know which is better/worse- objectifying people or nullifying them.
